Make $TERM permanently



  • Hi,
    I'm on a fresh Raspbian Stretch installation and trying to install RetroPie via the setup-script. The script is giving me the error that the terminal type is unknown (never had this problem before) so I did a bit of googling and found out how to set the variable "linux" and after this, the installation went fine. But now I am getting lots of errors everytime I'm trying to start an emulator or if I want to install optional components if I don't set the variable anew after every reboot. Did anyone have this problem before or know how to set the variable permanently? Thanks!
